A T Guys is pleased to be a leading distributor for the popular SpeedDots Tactile Screen Protectors.
We currently offer two different models of screen protectors for your iPhone. Our standard overlay contains a dot on each letter and input control while our
advanced overlay contains similar markings on buttons and input controls, however only the
letters F and J on the virtual keyboard will contain raised dots. This page is for the
standard layout for the iPhone 4 and 4S. If you wish to order a different model, please return to
the screen protectors category. Please write us if you have any questions.
Why use a tactile screen protector?
While it is true that a blind or visually impaired person does not require tactile
feedback to use a touchscreen with voiceover, We have discovered that placing single Braille
dots in a few key locations on the
screen can provide a noticeable increase in speed and productivity. If you are new to the
touchscreen environment, or dislike the fact that there are no physical buttons on your
phone, , then the tactile screen protector can offer both a practical, and affordable
solution for you!
How And Why?
While apple has done a great job making its touch screens fully accessible to blind and
visually impaired users, , simply placing raised
dots on the surface of the screen in a few key locations can help individuals input text and
information accurately and confidently! Apple, along with many third-party developers
typically place buttons in the same locations, which we are subsequently able to mark with a
small, raised Braille dot. These tiny dots can be easily felt, but in no way obstruct a
sighted person's view of the screen as our screen protectors are clear. This makes it easy
for you to share your phone with sighted friends, colleagues, family members, etc., without
interfering with the phone's operation
Below is a list of the dots and what they represent:
Note: Both keyboard options are available. Please be sure to select the correct product
when placing your order.

Advanced tactile screen protectors, please send us a note.
